B/OLD: Aging in our City presents Linking Generations through Song
Linking Generations through Song is an inclusive intergenerational singing group facilitated by a certified music therapist for those affected by Alzheimer’s or dementia, their care partner, as well as school-aged children and members from the community.
This project came about due to a lack of social activities in the community available to the diagnosed individual and their care partner to do together. This is particularly true on the weekend, when lack of opportunities outside of the home can leave the caregiver feeling overwhelmed and isolated.
This singing group addresses this need, providing care partners and diagnosed individuals with the opportunity to socialize with other members of the community, to seek out new support and to benefit from the therapeutic effect that singing can have on everyone.
